Chris Bosh is Certain He’s a Hall of Famer

by January 27, 2013

Of the Miami Heat’s Big Three, Chris Bosh is far and away the least heralded. This doesn’t mean his ego is any smaller than LeBron James or Dwyane Wade’s however. Bosh says there’s no doubt in his mind that he’s headed for the Hall of Fame. Per Fox Sports: “Bosh always has had plenty of confidence. Now, he’s talking about how he will be enshrined in Springfield, Mass. ‘Hell, yeah, of course. I’ve been a Hall of Famer like four years ago,’ Bosh said. ‘And I say that very serious, though. I’ve talked about it before with my friends.’ Bosh has career averages of 19.7 points and 9.0 rebounds. But something happened with the 10-year veteran Thursday that might have clinched his trip to Springfield. Bosh, averaging 17.2 points and 7.2 rebounds, was named to his eighth All-Star Game. The only eligible player in history with eight or more NBA All-Star selections who is not in the Hall is eight-time pick Larry Foust, a center who averaged 13.7 points and 9.8 rebounds from 1950-62. ‘With eight, I’m so thankful for that,’ said Bosh, who was intrigued to hear about the above stat. ‘It never gets old. Just to be able to have that opportunity to be an All-Star, it’s just incredible for me.'”
